Dynamic Birthday Party Invitations

Recently I designed PDF party invitations for my birthday party website. Customers who book a show through me can download the invitations and print them out themselves. What makes the PDF invitations so cool is that the blank lines on the party invitation are editable so parents can fill out the invitation on the computer instead of filling out all the invitations by hand.

I used Adobe Photoshop to design the invitations, and I used Adobe Acrobat XI to save them as a PDF and create the interactive PDF elements.

Finished example of my birthday party invitation:

  1. First off you’ll need to design your birthday party invitation. The final product should fit onto a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. For my invitations, I put two invitations onto a single page.

Seven Ways To Thank Your Clients

It’s important to send a thank you letter after every show. Taking a moment to show your appreciation will go a long way to impress your client and hopefully generate future business with them.

In this article I’m going to share with you seven ways to thank your clients:

1. Thank-you Email

This is the most common method that I use. After each show I sent the client a thank-you email thanking them for inviting me to perform at their event. A standard thank-you email would look something like this:

Thank you for inviting me to performing at (the event name). I had a great time and (include something personalized about the performance here). I hope everyone enjoyed the show.

Please keep me in mind for future events, and if you know of anybody that could benefit from some magical entertainment, please don’t hesitate to pass along my contact information. (If this person/venue could benefit from other specific shows/services that you offer, include those here). 

Thanks again,

If I took any photo’s at the event I try and include the photo’s in the email as well. I wrote more about this in this article: Using photo’s of children in your promotional material, and I also talked about getting high quality photo’s in this article: Automatic Amazing Show Photos.

Personalizing each thank-you letter is really important so that you really do take a moment to reflect and really thank them. You don’t want your thank-you letters to look and feel like just another marketing piece. One time I performed at a party with a spy theme so in that thank-you letter I included the following message.
